      is it possible to fold this hand on the river? I'm a little confused and don't know what to do. It's very hard to fold it but thare is a lot of hand which I beat, and the pot is so big...

      Hello BGawli,

      You don't have to bet it on turn pot size. He will have hard time Calling with a lot worse hands, I'd bet ~$2 and very likely just Check/Fold it. He ain't gonna bet with worse 2pairs there and turn his hand into bluff.

      Best regards.

      Yeah, that would be very likely my line.

      even if his stack is so small? Don't you think that he will shove with worse 2P combination or like a bluff?

      What do you mean his stack is small? You guys are both 100BB deep. And why should he? Ship for like 50BB on river while we could easily have him beat with better 2pairs/sets/straight even, never know us. This basically will mean that he turned his hand into bluff.

      yeap... you're right but I'm talking about stack on the river when pot is $7.4 and he's got $2.4 left...
      ok I know, I lost my edge and I'm looking for excuses that my call was correct :)

      Nah, I still don't expect him to shove but rather just Check behind with them.
